A Uruguayan football club from Montevideo, Central Espanol Futbol Club, or more commonly known as Central Espanol, is one of the co-founders of the Uruguayan football federation. The other founder was Penarol. This occurred after Central was expelled from the AUF in 1923, and soon FUF had a parallel Uruguayan national team, which went on to participate in several international games. The FUF only lasted for three years after which both teams, Central and Penarol rejoined the AUF.
In 1971, Central merged with Espanol, and the team itself is a result of a merger between Soriano Polideportivo and Solis Bochas. Some of the team’s title wins include the First division championship in 1984 and the second division championship in 1961 and 1983. The team also made an appearance in the Copa Sudamericana in 2006. Some notable players who were a part of the team include Luis Torijo, Paulo Silas, Sergio Orteman, Alexander Medina, Diego Dorta amongst others.
